Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

Have you ever questioned your standing in life or your worth simply due to comparing yourself with others? This practice, called social comparing, is widespread in modern-day society. Our perception of the society is shaped through observation, experiencing new things, and communicating with other people. It’s important that we don’t form a negative view of ourselves due to making comparisons with other people.

Routinely asking yourself questions such as "Why did he get a promotion while I'm stuck in this position?", "Will we ever have as nice a house as they do?", or "How can I be as happy as she is in life?". These questions will ultimately lead down to a dark road.

Unfortunately, social comparing has taken over some people's daily lives. To prevent becoming trapped in the comparing mindset, it's essential that you understand the reasons behind the habit and the long-term effects that it has. Grace Scott will delve into this phenomenon in "The Comparing Game".

Here Is A Preview Of What You'll Learn..

• How to Get Out of The Comparing Mentality

• Why It's Always Unfair -- and Futile -- to Make Comparisons

• How to Break Free of The Comparing Mindset

• Why Resentment is Directly Tired to Comparing Yourself with Others

• Real Examples of How Others Have Overcome Social Comparison

Constantly making social comparisons is a roadblock from reaching your goals and achieving your best, most fulfilling life.

In "The Comparing Game", You will find out the tools you need to understand the thought process behind social comparison, eliminate this practice from your life, and start measuring your happiness and success through self-exploration.

Sadie Robertson, bestselling author and star of Dancing with the Stars, has an important message for her generation: you don’t have to be held back by fear, anxiety, or loneliness anymore. In Live Fearless, Sadie takes you on a thrilling personal journey toward power, passion, and purpose as you live at the center of who God created you to be!

Dear friends,

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty tired of the struggle. You know which one I mean—fear, loneliness, not knowing who I am or what I’m meant to do. . . . Sound familiar?

I struggled with insecurity, comparison, and isolation for too many years, from thigh gaps to eyebrows to the lifestyles I felt I had to live up to. I was so afraid of being “found out,” that everyone in my life would somehow figure out that I was fearful and small and that I struggled to make my faith a reality and to be secure in who I am. It took a major perspective shift from staring at comments on a screen to really digging into the pages of my Bible to see what God actually says about overcoming fear.

Setting aside the fear, anxiety, and comparison to become the joy-filled person God created you to be is exactly what God is inviting you into. To really be seen and known. To be an agent of change by choosing compassion, connection, and acceptance for everyone you come in contact with. Inside this book are ways to find your power, passion, and purpose—and reach for your dreams. Plus, there are places to jot down notes, fun lists, practical ways to make changes, and thoughts on how living fearless can change everything.

Are you tired of the awful comparison game? Are you exhausted from trying to keep up, from feeling small and afraid that people will find the real you and be disappointed? There is so much more for you. No matter who you are, where you come from, or what your fears are, freedom is available to you. It’s just a matter of saying yes. You in?

Hope you’ll join me on this wild adventure as we learn to Live Fearless together.



THERE existed from very early times a collection of Norse proverbs and wise counsels, which were attributed to Odin (Othin) just as the Biblical proverbs were to Solomon. This collection was known as "The High One's Words," and forms the basis of the present poem.

Few gnomic collections in the world's literary history present sounder wisdom more tersely expressed than the Havamal. Like the Book of Proverbs it occasionally rises to lofty heights of poetry. If it presents the worldly wisdom of a violent race, it also shows noble ideals of loyalty, truth, and unfaltering courage.

Over time other poems were added to the original content dealing with wisdom which seemed, by their nature, to imply that the speaker was Odin. Thus a catalogue of runes, or charms, was tacked on, and also a set of proverbs. Here and there bits of verse crept in; and of course the loose structure of the poem made it easy for any reciter to insert new stanzas almost at will. This curious miscellany is what we now have as the Havamal

Five separate elements are pretty clearly recognizable: (1) the Havamal proper (stanzas 1-80), a collection of proverbs and counsels for the conduct of life; (2) the Loddfafnismol (stanzas 111-138), a collection somewhat similar to the first, but specifically addressed to a certain Loddfafnir; (3) the Ljothatal (stanzas 147-165), a collection of charms; (4) the lovestory of Odin and Billing's daughter (stanzas 96-102); (5) the story of how Odin got the mead of poetry from the maiden Gunnloth (stanzas 103-110). There is also a brief passage (stanzas 139-146) telling how Odin won the runes, this passage being a natural introduction to the Ljothatal, and doubtless brought into the poem for that reason.
